Washington, D.C. (September 15, 2019)--Jasmine McCree scored and Maggie Barron made a stop on a penalty kick to lead the Mount St. Mary's women's soccer team to a 1-0 win at American on Sunday afternoon. Barron made a season-high 12 saves to earn the shutout victory for the Mountaineers.
McCree provided all the offense the Mount (1-6-0) would need when she scored off an American turnover in the seventh minute. American's goalkeeper attempted a clear, but the ball went right to McCree, who was able to loft the ball over the keeper's head for the lone goal of the game.
The Eagles (4-4-0) had a chance to tie the score when a penalty kick was awarded to Reagnan Gould. Barron came up with the big save, diving to her left to deny the potential game-tying shot. Barron had another key save later in the half to preserve the victory.
American held a 21-to-7 shot advantage in the game, including a 12-to-5 margin shots on target. Barron has recorded double figure saves in each of the past two games for the Mountaineers.
The Mountaineers return to action on Friday, September 20, when Saint Francis U visits Waldron Family Stadium for the Northeast Conference opener.
